Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln’s Killer by James L. Swanson.
“The murder Abraham Lincoln set off the greatest manhunt in American history, from April 14th to April 26th, 1865, the assassin, John Wilkes Booth, led Union cavalry and detectives on a wild twelve-day chase through the streets of Washington, D.C., across the swamps of Maryland, and into the forests of Virginia, while the nation, still reeling from the just ended Civil War, watched in horror and sadness. James L. Swanson’s Manhunt is a fascinating tale of murder, intrigue, and betrayal. A gripping hour-by-hour account told through the eyes of hunted and the hunters.” (from the publisher)
The meeting will take place in Conference Room B/C on the lower level.
This event is free and all are welcome.
Copies of the book are still available at the Circulation Desk on the Main Floor.
We hope to see you there!
